Three letters of support from First Nations leaders:
The River Club team have had ongoing meaningful engagements with the First Nations people on how to sensitively and respectfully memorialise the historical significance of the broader precinct, celebrate the history and culture of the First Nations and how they can be represented and meaningfully involved in the proposed redevelopment project. As a result, leaders of the First Nations Collective, who are the traditional custodians of the River Club site, have given their backing for the development with letters of support.
River Club Intangibles Report:
AFMAS Solutions was appointed by the Liesbeek Leisure Properties Trust to engage the First Nations with regard to their intangible cultural heritage in terms of the River Club project site. The report emanating from this engagement constitutes a Supplementary Report to the River Club Heritage Impact Assessment.
